Turtle Wisdom on Mother’s Day

Turtle Wisdom on Mother’s Day

The  Turtle moves slowly so that she can savor the beauty and wonder of her environment.  Because her species was here long before humans were, she is a symbol of Mother Earth herself.

The turtle is very adaptable, and carries her home with her.  Home is within.

Turtles dig holes in the earth or sand and lay eggs and bury them to incubate and hatch.  Once they carefully bury the eggs, mom goes off to do her own thing, never to return to the newly hatched kids.

Her job as mother is a little abridged compared to humans, but there is a lesson to learn from our ancient friend.  It’s not a bad thing for a mother to let go of her offspring, physically and even emotionally after a certain point in their development.  Contrary to common thought, parents do not own their children. Nor should children, past their own adulthood, expect their parents to owe them anything.  Nor should anyone, parent or child cast blame on one another for their own unhappiness in life.

Things get awfully entangled and that’s called karma.  Letting go of our karma is what we are doing.

It’s not letting go of the love.  It’s letting go of the old entanglements, and unhealthy patterns between mom or dad and the kids.

It’s honoring our path, and honoring their path, no matter what path that is.

The relationship between parents and kids isn’t what it seems.  All of the fighting and the drama was just all of us playing out our galactic story of unresolved issues that we had going on before the Earth was formed.

But there comes the point where we acknowledge it’s all just a story.  Just the play we all scripted.

Then it frees everyone up.  It’s a beautiful thing.
